Czech Crown Jewels Exhibition

Czech Crown Jewels Exhibition Prague Castle by Guidilo.com

We've visited the Czech Crown Jewels Exhibition at Prague Castle to bring you detailed information & pictures! Prague commemorate the 700th anniversary of the birth of Charles IV with several exhibition projects and this special exhibition is one of the highlights (as the Crown Jewels are displayed only when the President of the Republic is elected). So don't miss this unique opportunity and head to the Vladislav Hall, only few days remain...

The shortest way to get there is to climb up the Old Castle Staircase.
Quite exacting, but with a pleasant view of Prague's rooftops.

Up on the hill, turn left to South Gardens. Don't see the line yet? That's a good sign!
(Otherwise that means approx. 4-5 hours waiting time...)
